Aggregate Demand and State-Level Employment
What explains the sharp decline in U.S. employment from 2007 to 2009? Why has employment remained stubbornly low? Survey data from the National Federation of Independent Businesses show that the decline in state-level employment is strongly correlated with the increase in the percentage of businesses complaining about lack of demand. While business concerns about government regulation and taxes also rose steadily from 2008 to 2011, there is no evidence that job losses were larger in states where businesses were more worried about these factors.
FOX need guess no longer!
Figure 3 shows there was almost no correlation between job growth in a state from 2008 to 2011 and the increase in the percentage of businesses citing regulation and taxes as their primary concern. In fact, if anything, the correlation is positive.

Tea Party Issues Scathing Rebuttal to State of Union Twelve Hours Before Speech
Posted by Andy Borowitz
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a break with tradition, Tea Party Republicans issued their official rebuttal to tonight’s State of the Union address a full twelve hours before President Obama was scheduled to deliver it.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) appeared on Fox News Channel at 9 A.M.(E.T.) to read the rebuttal, which some historians called the most brutal response ever to a Presidential speech that had not yet been made.
Calling Mr. Obama’s speech “full of the same empty promises and bald-faced lies we’ve come to expect,” Sen. Paul added that “tonight Barack Obama made his case: for his own impeachment.”
Laced with sarcasm and invective, Sen. Paul’s rebuttal eviscerated Mr. Obama’s not-yet-given speech, ending with a call for the President to be tried for treason and banished from the U.S.

No, why do you ask? John Edwards is a very wealthy man, I'm sure he is not a deadbeat dad, he may be an ahole with women, but not with his children.
Are you defending Walsh not paying child support? His exwife may have to go on welfare and medicaide then.
Why are you so stupid Jane? Why?

Can you tell us, or cut and paste why the ghettos and projects are 'Blue Magnets' for blacks? How or why that happened?

lily thinks playing with water guns is dangerous but playing with druggies who die from an over dose is ok , liberals WTF.

What's up Airhead?
I fell off my chair laughing this morning when I read you calling "someone else" besides you a vile beast. Do you feel better now that you have spread your hate & dark sunshine?
Do you enjoy being such a low class person?

It's liberals who should be banned and forbidden from owning guns. YOU people kill people. Whether it's on the streets or in an abortion clinic, blacks are killing themselves at an unprecedented rate.
Mass killings by Democrats or Chicago ghetto style killings from your "culture of violence" are not by someone clinging to their guns and religion or angry white men.
Ft. Hood~~~ Nidal Malik Hasan Registered Democrat ~ Muslim
Columbine ~~~ Too young to vote; both families Dylan Klebold's and Eric Harris' parents were registered Democrats and progressive liberals
Virginia Tech ~~~ Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff ~ Registered Democrat
Colorado Theater ~~~ James Holmes Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; liberal
Connecticut School Shooter ~~~ Adam Lanza Registered Democrat; hated Christians; nuculur liberal
Gabrielle Giffords ~~~ Jared Loughner Registered Pelosi fun loving extremist; deranged Democrat
George Zimmerman ~~~ Another deranged gun toting Democrat
Chris Jordan Dorner ~~~ Registered Democrat, Deranged Obama Supporter, Ex-Cop, Ex-Naval Intelligence Officer, Cold Blooded Killer
Common thread - all of these idiots are Democrats.

maybe the new black pope could make you in charge of "Vaginal Probes," your favorite topix subject. Obsess much?
and how about Drive-By Communion? the in-laws will love it.
and Mary will be called the Yo, Baby Mama Ho
the robes do resemble hoodies so you'd be fine converting and maybe could persuade them to wear their papal pants below their ass cracks.
we could add "..and shit" after Amen
multiculturalism is so wonderful except an Asian Pope would have immediately passed the Pope Test, no dumbing down required.

you forgot to mention that the MSM has been all over the drone thing while the right wing media cheers Obama on.
and how about those GOP congressman loving Obama's drone program?
but maybe we should just have more troops on the ground in the middle east?
Interventionists Ignore Public Opinion at Their Peril
or maybe not.

i'm not answering questions that you can't answer.
anyway you seem to have some sort of memory problem.

It might be a temporary side-effect of having to endure your ignorant posts.

Seventy-one percent of Americans — including 78 percent of Republicans and 70 percent of Democrats — said they support the use of drones against suspected terrorists.
torture never polled like that.

I cannot feel sad for them for their choices. I feel sad for those who refuse a "hand up" when their situations Appear to me to be what I assume is bleak. Their actual situations may in fact be Not so bleak (to them).

Barry wants to disarm the U.S. just as Iran and North Korea are developing nuclear weapons.
The fool is dangerous.
Jeebus was right.

LOL... Your eyes are useless because your mind is blind. Those like you who wish to sing...always find a worthless song.
Can you still tell us why the ghettos and projects are 'Blue Magnets' for blacks? How or why that happened?
